Good. I don't actually think it's a bombshell, though. The EO is disliked by many people. Scholars, government officials, other republicans, people of the planet Earth. Did that cover almost everyone who could possibly dislike it?

Except for the part of the country that successfully voted Trump to be President? But who cares about them, am I right?


The left care little for Democracy.

Contest? You denigrated Trump and I reminded you of your place in life, which is NOT the most powerful man in the world.


No, I told the truth to you whomever you may be, you haven't come back. As well as that, I don't give a toss about, 'the most powerful man in the world' it doesn't impress me so much, far more problems going on than just powerplay. What anyone in that position could achieve in proper order could achieve, might impress me though, but I guess you just like power.

Can President Trump fire Yates, a Barack Obama appointee, as a result?

The answer is yes.

According to CNN, “The White House could choose to fire Yates and install someone who will carry out the administration’s priorities, but it did not immediately respond to a CNN request for comment.” The president did tweet on the topic, though, calling Yates an “Obama AG.”


This alone gives reason to fire Yates:

According to USA Today, Trump’s executive order “had been reviewed by the Justice Department Office of Legal Counsel before it was issued Friday. The OLC, whose authority narrowly addresses the form and whether the order is narrowly drafted, approved the order.” However, according to the newspaper, Yates wrote that the OLC did not review whether the order was “wise or just.”


It is her job to follow the law. She admits that the EO is legal, yet she will not defend it, just because of her political views.
She needs to be drained along with the rest of the swamp.

"I am responsible for ensuring that the positions we take in court remain consistent with this institution's solemn obligation to always seek justice and stand for what is right," Yates wrote in a letter to lawyers in the Justice Department on Monday, according to ABC News. "At present, I am not convinced that the defense of the executive order is consistent with these responsibilities nor am I convinced that the executive order is lawful."


?

Libya. The guy that appointed her bombed the hell out of it, and our ambassdor was killed.

Somalia. Same old Same old as when AQ shot down blackhawks.

Syria. YEARS of civil war.

Yemen, Same thing. Terrorism running rampant.

Sudan. The guys from the Darfur genocide still in charge.

Iraq. That place where the JV team is in charge.

Iran. Been sending foreign fighters to all of the above.

So you tell me how refusing to enforce a immigration ban from those places is ensuring JUSTICE is served ?

Temporary until Sessions is sworn in is all. Publicity stunt.


Temporary at best, for the grandstanding liberal Democrats. If I'm a DoJ employee, I don't think I'm too interested in siding with the acting Attorney General in defiance of an order from the President of the United States, especially when he has her replacement already on deck awaiting confirmation. Might be a bad career move.

She needs to be fired. If Truman could fire MacArthur, Trump can let her go. Obama wouldn't have this one day.


WOW that was fast. Figured they would wait till morning! LOL

Well, hopefully not "all" Obama appointees are so corrupt that they put politics before upholding the constitution and protecting our country.
